Buzz: Olney says Mets "cautiously optimistic"

In a recent report for ESPNNews, Buster Olney claims that the Mets are, according to a source, “cautiously optimistic” that a deal with Johan Santana will be completed by today’s 5 p.m. ET deadline. Olney reports that the deal will likely be closer to Santana’s wishes than to the Mets’ due to the leverage that Santana now has.

Olney did not report a length for the discussed deal, but said that the amount could be around $150 million.
